Product description

Alfred Brendel unfortunately recorded very little Bach and it's a shame since as evinced here he clearly has an affinity for this repertoire. His exceptional contrapuntal clarity and imaginative use of embellishment in the Chromatic Fantasia and Fugue for instance is remarkably well considered if not unique. His performance of Busoni's transcription of Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland as well is equally stunning, reminiscent of the efforts of another of the great Bach pianists of his generation Wilhelm Kempff. Unlike most of Brendel's Philips recordings as well, this one sounds seamless instead edited to death. Those looking for a distinguished alternative to Glenn Gould are strongly encouraged to give Brendel here a listen.
